Dilbert is the title character of the satirical office humor comic strip by Scott Adams. This post is the compilation of some of the best and the funniest strips of the Dilbert comics. The comic strip originally revolved around Dilbert and his megalomaniac dog Dogbert. As the comic strip became popular the plot shifted to his workplace in Silicon Valley.
First Dilbert Comics Strip
This is the first Dilbert comic strip published on April 16, 1989. Initially most of the plotline revolved around Dilbert and his pet dog ‘Dogbert’. Initially his ‘pet’ nature was emphasized but slowly he evolved as the smartest dog on the earth who is also planning to conquer the world one day.
Dream Job : One of Scott’s Favorite
Wally with six hairs is one of the oldest engineers who hates to work. The unnamed pointy-haired boss is the manager of the engineering division of Dilbert’s company.
This strip is one of the best example of imagining something funny rather than something funny actually happening. Scott Adams says, “”I also like comics in which characters are unusually happy about something trivial, evil, or selfish. That juxtaposition is always funny to me.”
IITians Don’t Sleep
Asok is an IIT graduate who works hard but doesn’t get the recognition he deserves. This comic strip got viral in India because of it’s reference to IITs, India’s premier engineering institutes.
Project Management Zombie
Alice is a competent engineer who is often frustrated. Alice is based on one of Scott’s co-worker Anita whom he described as “pink suit, fluffy hair, technical proficiency, coffee obsession, and take-no-crap attitude.”
This comic strip perfectly sums up the complexities of startup funding.
